Generally, shoes are produced in Asia and Latin America in low-cost countries, mainly because they are made from many different parts that need to be stitched or glued. Current production often does not meet ecological and social standards. The main goal of this project was to explore an alternative footwear production process. We reviewed how Digital Fabrication techniques such as Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), could help build objects with different structures and properties from a single material to address this issue. This is especially true for novel hybrid printing processes, where the material is printed onto existing fabric.
